This week I want to talk about trust. I took a cab recently for an hour's journey in the daytime and thought nothing of it. I was in the cab gabbing on the phone until we reached the destination. I had no idea where I was as I was going somewhere new. The cab driver stopped for me to get cash out to pay him. I then left and went to my destination. Then I took a minute to relive what just happened. I did not remember a single thing about the journey. I barely knew what the driver looked like and certainly didn't know his name. I didn't tell my husband where I was going either. I blindly trusted the man to take me to my destination without even thinking about what else could have happened. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who this has happened to. It got me thinking...why do we blindly trust services that we actually barely have any protection from yet we struggle with trusting our friends, family and other services? Understandably, we haven't been hurt by the cab service and may have been hurt by others so it makes it harder but surely this is questionable? I'm interested in knowing what you think about this. Trust is a big topic and we all have different benchmarks for trusting others so I'd be interested to hear any thoughts or experiences you've had.
The other topic I want to talk about is Energy. One of the areas I work on with your wellbeing is energy and this usually relates to the physical side of your life. Over the last couple of weeks though, I've noticed a more vibrational energy shift occurring in me and I think I might tweak this element in my practice to incorporate it into my programmes. My physical energy was fine, I've been moving more (I'm a stone down now) 🙌 but I noticed that my mood was super low. I found myself exhausted but I didn't necessarily need to be. Everything was the same as it always is. Once I meditated on it, on my way to the very thing that was exhausting me, I realised that I had been giving too much away and that energy was affecting the way I felt about everything. It took me a good two weeks to get out of this funk. I noticed that I wasn't sleeping well, I was craving a lot of sugar, I wanted to stay in bed longer, I was irritable, I had very little patience and I was in a state of worry - when I didn't really need to be. I was having mini exhaustion! I wrote about this a while back, so have a look again to see if you might be going through it too. It can creep up on you and even the most aware can be affected. There are tips in this post but most importantly, if something, even just one thing in your life seems a little off, stop, take stock, reflect and see what might be affecting you. What you put out is what you get back, so make sure that you're putting out what you want back in your life.
There's a new blog post too - Can you really achieve work-life balance?
Have a fab week and lots of love
